Field Sparrow

While on my failed quest for fawns yesterday, I encountered many types of birds including this Field Sparrow.


He stayed on that branch, which is about waste high, while I snapped photos of him.  Turns out he wasn’t just being friendly and posing for me, but, when a Field Sparrow is scared they will fly up into a bush to watch what happens and then decide what to do next.

It’s 4:00 AM here and raining quite hard outside right now.  Glad I’m not huddled inside a tent listening to the rain pelting the top, while thinking that there is only a thin layer of nylon between me and the lightning.

Web traffic on my blog was very slow yesterday, but something significant happened with those numbers.  For the first time since WordPress has been tracking what countries my visitors come from, foreign visitors outnumbered American visitors.  American visits usually outnumber foreign visits by 2 to 1.  I would conclude this is a side-effect of the first major American Summer holiday being this weekend.

    I don’t even (know how to) interpret those stats – but, just telling you that, despite this lovely sparrow we want a fawn!!!
